I wonder if this could also be caused by r24413. On Windows XP, we don't
have a way of getting IPv6 routes because the GetIpForwardTable2
function is missing. But when scanning this directly connected target, I
would expect the code to use a source address of 2001:470:9388:4034:2dde:5925:6618:6744.

Does setting the source address work for you as a workaround?

nmap -6 -S 2001:470:9388:4034:2dde:5925:6618:6744 --packet-trace 2001:470:9388:4034:5a98:35ff:fe19:37fe
